Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I jump started my 2006 toyota highlander and accidentally reversed the jumper cables. All the engine dash lights come on and the gas pedal would no longer work. My OBD II had error code P2118 and P2118 P. I have since replaced the battery and the 10A fuse for the throttle motor and the gas pedal now works but the dash lights icons are still staying on.

SOURCE: Toyota error code P2118

I don't have a Sienna but I do have a 2008 Toyota Camry SE. After it being in the garage for many months, 8 months I think, I had to give the battery a jump to finally start it up. Well The jumper cables I used weren't that great. They flickered and seemed to smoke a little. So i removed them and put a better set on to get a charge. I didn't think anything of it. After that charge came through and i was able to accelerate at all... The throttle was to the floor and the car would not even go up .5 RPMs... After several days and talking to the dealer, I was about to call a Tow to have it taken to the dealer. Luckily my friend came by with one of those diagnostic readers and it spit out the P2118 error code. Immediately we looked it up and found this site. Thanks to Fixya.com I was able to determine that it was a freakin measly fuse that blew due to bad jumper cables... Thank god for the Fuse and thank you to Fixya.com that I was able to determine this so quickly!!!

I have a 2007 Toyota Highlander. We came back from a trip and the vehicle would not start. I went to jump it and the alarm went off. I disconnected the jumper cable and it stopped. When I reconnected...


Sounds like a bad battery. If the battery is OK than lock and unlock your Toyota with your fob. If it is still dead than take the better terminal cables off and touch the negative and positive cables together while both are disconnected and away from battery terminals. Should reset your anti theft system. Connect the cables back and try to start. again. If no crank likely bad battery. If battery is OK but no crank then it is the starter.

I jump start my wifes car at night with the cables backwards


I found that while checking my fuses that i had pulled out what looked like a black plastic "fuse puller" that was actually some kind of jumper. I had accidentally re-installed it reversed. I reversed it back to its original position and all lights, clock, radio, etc.. work normal now.

Gear problem


If there is no check engine light on the dash, it means the gear box should be changed.

If there is a check engine light on the dash, then take it for servicing/ correction (it might have shifted from the accurate position).

Take care.
